CACI To Support USAF Combat Command (Dec. 12)



ARLINGTON, Va. --- CACI International Inc announced today that it has been awarded a $9 million contract to provide mission support for the Air Force Air Combat Command's Director of Operations, Battle Management Operations Division, at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. CACI's role will center upon supporting the Division's command and control aircraft and ground systems. The new contract, awarded through the General Services Administration Millennia Lite Functional Area 3 contract, includes one base year and eight option years. The award underscores CACI's continuing growth as a provider of engineering and intelligence services to the Department of Defense.

The Air Combat Command's Battle Management Operations Division is responsible for the Air Force's fleet of command and control aircraft, which includes such aircraft as the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) planes.
